Low Lying Placenta
Random chance: The embryo implants on the uterine lining, and at that location the placenta starts to grow. Usually, it is on a portion of the uterus that will stretch and thin during pregnancy, and is nowhere near the internal cervical opening. However, sometimes the embryo implants very near the internal cervical opening, resulting in a low-lying placenta or even a placenta covering the opening, req. C-sec. ...Read more
May be both: A previa is usually painless bleeding when the cervix is changing (dilating) causing bleeding from torn vessels being sheared off. It is a type of abruption although any bleeding from a detaching placenta is strictly called an abruption. These are usually away from the cervix and can be associated with cramping, pain, or heavy bleeding. If you have a previa, let your doc know if you bleed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Puts you at risk: Honestly, a low lying fetus means there is a higher chance for developing placenta previa, where part or all of the placenta lies over the cervix. There is less blood supply in the lower part of the uterus and so miscarriage chance is a little higher, as is risk for growth restriction, preterm birth, and need for c-section. Avoid heavy lifting, sex until 2nd trimester, smoking, stress, traveling ...Read more

Anterior placenta: Tis is describing where the baby's placenta is implanted on the wall of the uterus - yours is low lying, on the anterior, or belly button side of the uterus, and is in a breech position - head up, body down - that is ok at 26 weeks.

What kind of incision for delivery of singleton in transverse lie with anterior placenta previa? Will low transverse cut risk hemorrhage/uterine tear?
Hyst'omy MANDATED: hello Annie-_777 I am not an OB GYN but I have had a lot of experience which tells me that a lower abdominal incision (Pfannen-Stiel) is a better incision in almost all situations. This situation of a transverse lie and an anterior placenta praevia is a very hazardous situation because you need the baby out and the cord clamped within seconds of opening the uterus so choose a very skilled surgeon. ...Read more
Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?
Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more
